A humble beginning It all started with me getting my first pc, a 386, around the age of 10. Playing Gorillas Bas, getting immersed into the world of adventure games, writing midi songs and spinning cubes in 3D Studio MAX. That was the beginning of my love affair with computers and what later became a full-time hobby. Fast forward a couple of decades (3 to be exact) and sitting in my corner office (am actually at the corner of an open-plan space), surrounded by monitors, sipping my coffee, thinking that life is pretty sweet. Some would argue that 3 monitors are 2 too many, but for me is a constant battle, trying to fit all the software am using in those 3 monitors, in order to avoid using alt + tab to switch between them. That’s the life of a Web Developer.
It’s being three years since I wrote an article on how we deal with projects and requests from clients on a day-to-day basis. On the article, I explained how we use different tools to assign tasks to team members and how we collaborate as a team.

Moreover, I would like to share our team's day-to-day collaboration, which I believe advanced our team’s efficiency to the next level in the past year.

This is how much Brands have in their disposal to engage with their consumers. And this is where User Experience design comes in to provide meaningful and relevant experiences to users. So, how do we blend UX design on mobile apps?
In case you don't know that, BLEND is a very experience web development company in Cyprus. Therefore, On my first day as a web developer at Blend Digital Agency I was introduced to many cool and time-saving web development and management team tools, one of them was GIT. It took me a while to get used to it and understand the logic behind branching and merging. So, what is Life with GIT? Maybe i should describe first, how it is without it:
Contact pages are usually of the lowest priority when it comes to web design. That is totally wrong! The website contact page is one of the most important and most visited pages on a website. Take yourself for example; how many times have you visited a company’s contact page to view their location or get their telephone or email address?
Facebook competitions are a great way for companies to draw visitors to their page and have some sort of interaction with their brand. Our web development team based in Nicosia is well aware of these top 5 points when creating Facebook Competition Apps:
